To mark the 30th anniversary of the Pyramid, the Musée du Louvre has commissioned another major public artwork, inviting Elias Crespin to design a new permanent piece for the museum.
Consisting of 128 metal tubes hanging from motor-powered cables, the artist’s kinetic creation, 'L’Onde du Midi', will perform its subtle choreography at the top of the Escalier du Midi in the southeast corner of the Cour Carrée.
